Hello, I have an iPhone 8, have dropped it and the glass has smashed and now there is a black blob on the screen. Would I be better off trying to get it fixed or should I swap it for a new one. My contract doesn’t finish until February 2022 so I know I’ll have to pay for a replacement. I would appreciate advice on this. Thank you 🐝

It's £152 for an official screen repair to an iPhone 8 so weigh that up against the cost of upgrading now.

You could probably also sell the 8 damaged and get £80 or so for it.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. How would I find out what phone I could replace it with and how much it would cost? Again, thank you 🐝

text INFO to 85075 to see how much you need to pay to upgrade, then have a look in the shop pages to see what you like and you can then upgrade in your MyO2 or in any O2 store.
